Amnesty for Gas

Posted by redsatellite on July 11, 2008

You just knew this was going to happenonly a matter of time.

U.S. and Mexican entrepreneurs with an eye for a quick buck are buying subsidized fuel in bulk in Mexico and hauling it across the U.S. border to make big profits, officials say.

With a yawning gap between the cost of Mexico’s state-subsidized fuel and record U.S. pump prices, tanker truck owners and people doing business on the border are filling up tanks or plastic barrels with Mexican fuel and selling it in the United States.

Gasoline in Mexico is around a third cheaper than in the United States. For diesel, prices are more than double — well over $4 a gallon in U.S. border states compared to just over $2 in Mexican border cities.

So…in the spirit of George Dubya, Barack O-bambi, and Juan McCain, I want Amnesty granted to ALL gallons of gas as they cross the border. And let’s make this policy retroactive to when gas was a $1.50 a gallon. That’s right.

With that, let me be the first to WELCOME all those gallons of gas to our country!

    If you’re the first to welcome that gasoline, please let me be the second. Of course, amnesty will never be granted to these wonderful innovators, because we all know Dubya’s bank account is directly linked to Exxon-Mobil pumps across America.

    We wouldn’t want to take money from billionaires and put it in the pockets of people who actually need it. This is America!
